Liam Neeson finds Five Minutes Of Heaven

With James Nesbitt in a Northern Irish drama

He might be known for his charming roles (or his Yellow Pages ads), but James Nesbitt really shined in Paul Greengrass’ Bloody Sunday, which chronicled the tragic incident in Northern Ireland.

Now Nesbitt is returning to the subject matter, signing up to co-star with Liam Neeson in Five Minutes Of Heaven, which will follow two men deeply affected by the country’s troubles from their ignition in the 1960’s through to the peace process in 1998.

Downfall’s Oliver Hirschbiegel is directing and Variety is covering the story.
